Jonathan's first volume in a series of New Testament commentaries:

             

PETER, PAUL AND JACOB

 

A VITAL PERSPECTIVE flowing from the ancestral wells of

first generation Christianity

 

This volume is a collection of commentaries on nine letters in the New Testament ~ one by Peter, seven by Paul, and one by Jacob ~ also known as James. Recent scholarship and the continual dynamic of the Spirit have emerged to present a clearer view of the original springs from which the faith has flowed.



Ad fontes: to the sources. Here we engage conversations with the
ancestors as we wrestle with the interpretation of these Scriptures as they applied to them, and as they are now appropriate to our time. Over the past nineteen centuries of the translation and interpretation of the Greek texts, divergent and partisan views have caused an accumulation of rubble which filled in the wells of the New Testament manuscripts with "earth," cutting off access to the original "springs." The flow of the Living Water from many verses and passages has been blocked.



Genesis 26 records Isaac digging again the wells that Abraham had dug. The envious Philistines had filled them in with earth, cutting off their supply and flow of life. Like Isaac, each succeeding generation must endeavor to re-dig the wells and re-open the providential springs to release a fresh flow of the Living Word to the land.



The interpretation and comments of this volume are based upon a comprehensive translation of the New Testament by the author: THE NEW TESTAMENT, God's Message of Goodness, Ease and Well-being Which Brings God's Gifts of His Spirit, His Life, His Grace, His Power, His Fairness, His Peace and His Love.



The reader is given multiple renderings of the Greek texts
The perspective is relevant to the early cultural and historical setting Comments on each letter begin with a concise introduction

Critical attention is given to the significance of the Greek verb tenses Each verse is presented in bold face for easy reading
Alternate renderings are parenthetically inserted in light face

Multiple references are made to other NT letters and the four gospels
Additional quotes from various commentators are also cited
